Have you ever been frustrated by your options? I know that’s a general question, but truly this is where most new ideas are born.


In today’s show, my guest Megan shares how she created a beautiful site that is rethinking the traditional bridal registry.  In our interview, she discusses where the dream for this site was born, and she also gives excellent tips to all of the handmade artisans looking to expand their reach selling online.

 I’m intrigued by the idea that so many traditions that we take part in could use a new and tasteful approach.

Much like the Dowry decided to give the otherwise generic registry a boost in personality, there are many areas where change would be happily welcomed, imagine the possibilities!
